democratic leader nancy pelosi says she won't budge when it comes to tax hikes for the wealthy, putting her directly at odds with house speaker john boehner. >> could you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy? we've seen talk about a possible compromise that could leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all no, way? >> no. the preponderance made it very clear in his campaign that there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. you cannot go forward -- you have to cut some investments. if you cut too many you are hampering growth, you're hampering education, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestme

: someone tried to ask nancy pelosi. isn't there a way that we cannot sort of close loopholes and not raise taxes on the rich. she's like no! no! there is not enough revenue there. bush tax cuts are done! >> they were supposed to expire two years ago. they were meant to expire. it was written -- >> stephanie: tom in pennsylvania. hello, tom. >> hey steph. how you doing? welcome from the northernmost county of alabama. look, i don't mean to be dr. buzz kill but you know, these guys on fox and the entire right wing establishment they're really not a joke. i mean they -- we like to laugh at them and it is good fun to laugh at them. and you need to laugh at them in a way but as a historian which is how i was trained they really remind me of how nazi, germany got started. >> stephanie: you beat jim to that this morning. >> caller: no. anyway i could duplicate his version of -- but it really bothers me when i look at these people who make up news. >> stephanie: yep. exactly. by the way someone was calling

peak. nancy pelosi went on "this week" to talk about the tax-raising issue. here she is. >> you cannot go forward -- you have to cut some investments if you cut too many you are hampering growth education, and investment in the future so just to close loopholes is far too little money. if it's going to bring in revenue, the president has been very clear that the higher-income people have to pay their fair share. >> john: not only has he been clear about this. he was clear about it in 2008. barack obama ran in 2008 just like bill clinton ran in '92, saying -- all barack obama wanted to do was to let the bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire right? so number 1, the american people voted for this so barack obama has run on this twice, and he didn't get it done in the first term, but don't ever forget this is not obama's tax increase this is bush's tax increase my friends, this minor three-point hike was supposed to go into effect in 2010 the bush tax cuts were designed to run for ten years and then expire it's bush's tax increase, nobody else's and really where is the
